^^^^. Exactly. People freak out when presented with abnormal circumstances. Stay cool turn the key back (it won't go back far enough to lock the steering wheel when it isn't in park). It's way easier and loads safer to assess the situation stopped on the side of the road than traveling at 80mph while over heating the brakes or banging the engine off the rev limiter than slamming it back into gear.
I was annoyed at all the Toyota stuff when people were running into things etc. Turn it off slow it down and pull over, simple huh? I have had throttles stick in drive by cable vehicles too so don't blame that. It's a mechanical/electrical machine it can and will fail at some point.
Be careful and good luck with fixing it!! The bas/abs light came on in my truck last week. That's the most fun I have had since I owned it
. Turned out to be a shorted rear wheel speed sensor I found with an ohm meter. No more fun now
